“It is intended to target specific areas of the country where cases are rapidly increasing, which likely would be exacerbated by mass evictions,” the CDC said in its order.
The extended eviction ban is effective through Oct. 3.
But the moratorium still leaves a lot of room for evictions to continue — depending on where people live. As the court bureaucracy kick-starts for those not covered by the new ban, here is what renters facing possible eviction need to know.
What to know
- How long do I have before my landlord can evict me?
- What are my rights as a renter?
- Can my landlord just kick me out now?
- What should I do if my landlord tries to illegally lock me out of my rental?
- Can I negotiate with my landlord to avoid eviction and catch up on the past-due rent?
- What bills should I pay if I can’t afford all my expenses?
